The name of N₂Cl₄ is Dinitrogen Tetrachloride. the type of bond between is covalent bond. The steps use to name the compound is nomenclature.

The given compound N₂Cl₄  name is Dinitrogen Tetra chloride. In this compound , Nitrogen and Chlorine are non metals . nonmetals are electronegative elements that means they want to gain electron.  according to octet rule , atom need to have 8 electrons in outermost shell and it occurs by sharing of electron or by transferring of electron.

In case of nitrogen and chlorine both are electronegative and wants to gain electron so that they will complete their octet. The atom will complete their octet by sharing of electron. Hence form covalent bond.

Two nitrogen atoms are central atom and two chlorine atom connected to each nitrogen atom forming covalent bond.

two nitrogen = Dinitrogen ( Di for two)

four chlorine = tetrachloride ( tetra for 4 )

N₂Cl₄ = Dinitrogen tetrachloride

Thus, The name of N₂Cl₄ is Dinitrogen Tetrachloride. the type of bond between is covalent bond. The steps use to name the compound is nomenclature.
